Exosphere Poem


I traveled the thermosphere,
And enter the exosphere,
Excited to slip into space,
Gravity grabs me here,
Without as much force I fear,
I’m in a pretty far place...
Atoms? Molecules?
There’s only a few here,
Never colliding,
It's not what they do here,
Exosphere, exosphere,
The final frontier,
The last stop as we steer,
Through Earth's atmosphere...


The exosphere is the fifth and last layer of Earth's atmosphere before interplanetary space.
The bottom of the exospere (the exosbase) begins anywhere from 500 to 1,000 kilometres (310 to 620 mi) above the Earth. (depending on solar activity)
Temperatures in the exosphere remain constant.
Many satellites orbit the Earth in the exosphere.
